Amazon announced plans to open its fifth Texas fulfillment center in San Marcos. The center will be 855,000 square feet, adding more than 1,000 full-time, permanent jobs to the community, said Governor Greg Abbott.

Amazon already has fulfillment centers in Coppell, Haslet, Schertz and a fourth facility under construction in Dallas. Employees at the San Marcos center will pick, pack and ship smaller customer items such as books, electronics and toys.

In addition to the jobs that Amazon will provide for the community, Amazon offers student employees programs such as “Career Choice,” where the company will pre-pay up to 95 percent of courses related to in-demand fields, even if those courses are not related to a career at Amazon.

Amazon also works with U.S military veterans and military spouses by providing several programs to help veterans transition into the civilian workforce and connect them with an “internal network” for mentoring and support.

“I feel confident that the City of San Marcos and Hays County have both put our best foot forward in giving our community this partnership with one of America’s finest corporations,” said Will Conley, Hays County Precinct 3 and Chairman of the Greater San Marcos Partnership. “Having Amazon locate in San Marcos will most importantly create job opportunities and career paths for the residents of our region.”

Amazon currently employs more than three thousand Texans and has invested more than $400 million in the state.
